    I have been working at Adler School of Professional Psychology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mission-driven, employees are valued, pay is fair, benefits and work/life balance are great. Positive work environment, colleagues are generally good to work with.

    Cons

    Constant change happening at all levels. Constantly adding new programs without the resources in staff and faculty to support them, and now shifting from Adler School to Adler University. Faculty can be difficult to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding so many people in admissions and shift those resources to other areas of the school that need more people.

    I worked at Adler School of Professional Psychology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues committed to advancing social responsibility in the curriculum and in the students. The faculty, both core and adjunct, bring an impressive depth of experience in a multitude of disciplines that they are happy to share with students.

    Cons

    Too many levels of bureaucracy slow/stop initiatives. Adler is too quick to hire recent grads into adjunct positions. As a result these recent grads rely too heavily on theory and don't have the personal experience to make the course material "alive". The demands of carrying multiple course while being required to participate in multiple committees negatively impacts work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell students the reality of post graduation employment with a Masters and with a Doctorate. Share licensing pass rate for Adler students taking the EPPP. Share post-doc employment rates and starting / mid career salaries.

    I have been working at Adler School of Professional Psychology as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is generally upbeat, positive, and supportive. I agree with the school values of social justice and feel the school is attempting to improve society. The interior design is also relaxing and well done. While this may not br important to everyone, it seems to instill a more relaxing atmosphere.

    Cons

    The work culture is different than other places I have been. This is great for many people, including myself, however, I can see how it may take time to adjust to for others.

    Too political for such a small place

    I have been working at Adler School of Professional Psychology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits: company match (starts at 5%), generous pool of professional development $ that can be spent on outside conferences. Summer hours, lots of holidays.
    Nice co-workers, passionate about the cause of social justice.

    Cons

    Lack of centralized short term planning. Each team pursues their own little project without understanding its impact on others.
    Culture of fake smiling, sugar coating and complimenting management, no matter what.
    Very unhelpful and political HR. If you complain, be prepared to have a follow up chat with you boss.
    Salaries are low, although this is somewhat outweighed by perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think before you jump and commit your team in another project. Don't fix what ain't broken.
    Get out of your executive hub and mingle with us, mortals. You may actually benefit from knowing what's going on in the tranches.

    The mission and vision of the school play a huge part in everything we do. Passionate faculty and staff!
